This is a song about being grateful for what i have


Someone I Can Trust

-----( 1st verse )------------------
On another working day
for more than just the pay
It appears to me in clips
the way the road runner zips

In just under par
for corn chips and caviar
An existence on loan
made of flesh and bone
( Am, F, E, Am ) //

-----( 2nd verse )------------------
The distance that we flew
listening to Joni Mitchell Blue
Like a sweet town crier
the voice from a heavenly choir

You say now, baby hush
there’s plenty of time for us
Then you pucker up your lips
and put a sway in your hips
( Am, F, E, Am ) //

-----( chorus )------------------
With a quick count to ten
every day I was conjurin’
By mere circumstance
you and me for a lifetime dance

We can have this too
you walk in right on cue
To lead a life that's just
with someone I can trust
( Dm, C, E7, Am )

-----( 3rd verse )------------------
You’re a real guide wire
when the situation is dire
Speaking so openly
of how you want our lives to be

We’re shaking off the dust
before it turns into rust
You and I can see this through
to tango, it takes two
( Am, F, E, Am ) // ( to chorus )
